Storyline

Simon dreams of finding his one true love. Until then, he spends most of his time watching sloppy tearjerkers on video. He also shies away from the shallow young women that he and his friends Micke and Mario meet at bars. But Micke suggests one thing that is a guaranteed babe-magnet: taking a dog out for walks. It's an instant success for Simon, he meets the delightful Mia who immediately takes a liking to him. But things are not always what they may look like. Written by Mattias Thuresson

One of the most interesting from 2002
7 November 2002 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

From two young directors comes this delightful romantic comedy about Simon who dreams of finding his true love. A remake of a short with essentially the same cast it is sometimes obvious how the plot has had to be stretched to the limit for a feature-film length. E.g. Kjell Bergqvist can always make a character out of every role he plays nowadays, but he has several scenes although his character doesn't add one thing to the plot itself. It takes quite a while before Simon meets Mia the first time and the end with the chasing police car and what Simon does at the airport is just too unbelievable. But you can't separate romantic love from silliness, can you?

One of the year's most interesting feature-film debuts in Swedish cinema. 7 / 10.
